Krishnamurti Foundation Trust
Established in the UK in 1968 as an educational charitable trust, the Foundation exists to preserve and make available Krishnamurti's teachings, as well as to support Brockwood Park School, Inwoods Small School and the Krishnamurti Centre.
The role of the three Foundations, (UK, America, and India), was described by Krishnamurti himself when he said, "The Foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities... nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person."
The Foundation is not a religious organisation nor does it have any spiritual authority but it provides a service to those who may be interested in pursuing an understanding of the teachings in their own lives.
The Foundation maintains an extensive archive of Krishnamurti's original works in the form of hand-written material, books, transcripts and audio and video recordings of thousands of talks and discussions, meetings and conversations. There is also a collection of Krishnamurti's letters, photographs and reference material about him, his life, and his works. All this requires special techniques of preservation and the care of a trained archivist.
The Foundation is also actively engaged in the publication of this material in various forms. More than 60 books are in print, hundreds of video and audios recordings are already available and more are in preparation. A CD-ROM has been produced containing the text of all of the published work from 1933 to 1986. An increasing amount of this material is being translated. Over 30 languages are available including all major European and most Indian languages as well as Japanese, Cantonese, Mandarin, Russian, Korean and Hebrew. The Foundation provides this material either for free or through paid downloads on the following website: www.jkrishnamurti.org
The members of the Foundation work in close co-operation with Information Centres in Britain, Krishnamurti groups in many countries and Krishnamurti Foundations in other parts of the world.
The Krishnamurti Association in New Zealand is a New Zealand Charitable Society, affiliated with the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust and works to promote the study of Krishnamurti's Teachings in New Zealand.
